By Michael Brent Faulkner, Jr. VINE VOICE on August 14, 2012
Format: Audio CD
Joining an array of anticipated hip-hop efforts, 2 Chainz's major label debut (on Def Jam) Based On A T.R.U. Story does not disappoint. While it may lack the intellect of Nas's Life Is Good or the money savvy swag of Rick Ross's masterful God Forgives I Don't, Based On A T.R.U. Story delivers both solid and some truly noteworthy moments. Sure, there are some humorous, `stupid' cuts that could have easily been on Waka Flocka Flame's most recent Triple F Life: Fans, Friends & Family, but there are also some surprising, head-nodding ones too.

"Yuck!" opens the effort with a dramatic, dark and malicious sound. After the orchestra setting is established with flurries of strings, clapping synthetic snares serve as the percussive accompaniment to STREETRUNNER/Matthew Burnett's production masterpiece. 2 Chainz delivers a capable and compelling set of rhymes here, with a lengthy, though solid and explicit hook from none other than `Tunechi' (aka Lil Wayne).

"Crack" has a hard act to follow and it does so talking about, well `crack.' Well produced (Southside), the cut is less effective mainly due to the fact it is much simpler and more repetitive. It's not bad, but nor is it nearly as great as "Yuck!"

"Dope Peddler" samples Tom Lehrer's "The Old Dope Peddler" in interesting fashion.

2 CHAINZZZZ!!! Reigning from Atlanta, Georgia, Tauheed Epps aka Tity Boi has been putting in work over the past decade. Some people might be unaware that 2 Chainz is actually one half of the group Playaz Circle, a group that tasted a brief success with their street hit "Duffle Bag Boy" feat. Lil Wayne coming 5 years ago. So needless to say 2 Chainz has been around a lot longer than some people may think. The year 2012 has been a very productive year for the former DTP artist, being the hot collaborator for many of todays hottest artists, appearing on practically everybodies songs as well as releasing a large mass of mixtapes he finally dropped his major label debut Based on A T.R.U. story. When I listen to 2 Chainz my expectations of him as a rapper are pretty low. I would never expect high calibur lyricsm, or thought provoking storylines when he raps, however there is one thing that 2 Chainz does have that many other MC's lack, and that is charisma. 2 Chainz is a grown man at the age of 36, so whenever he speaks it feels authentic and it never sounds like he is trying to impress anybody. The only probably is 2 Chainz (to me anyways)doesn't really have anything interesting to say. His music is defined as Trap Muzik, a southern style of Hip Hop that relies on hard hitting bass and aggressive snares. This type of music is nothing new, however on this album it is a much more glossy and defined trap sound with a mix of pop and soul samples.

Based On A T.R.U. Story is an album compiled of radio singles, which is not a problem for its commercial purposes, but as an album this album doesn't express who 2 Chainz is as a person which is a real problem. All I got out of 2 Chainz is mainly drugs, women, money and violent activities which is what horribly stereotypes the genre of Hip Hop.

2 Chainz is one of the hottest rappers in the game right now. After a big breakthrough with the Kanye-run G.O.O.D. Music, he's been seen on some big songs, most notably is Kanye West's "Mercy". One thing is for sure with his debut album, he's been able to appeal to the mainstream market with decent production and some good guest features. He's got a very unique flow, for better and for worse. Is all of his success deserved though? Not really.
2 Chainz dropped his first single "No Lie". It was taken with good reception from fans and critics alike, all bundled with good sales numbers. "No Lie" features Drake, and let's be honest, the song really wouldn't be very good without him. The production was done well but 2 Chainz's rushed flow is only bearable for the time he's on the track, it would be a hard song to take down if it wasn't for Drake. "Birthday Song" was his second song and it features Kanye West. 2 Chainz dominates the song as Kanye almost seemed like an afterthought, which is good for 2 Chainz because it shows that he can hold down a big song like this on his own. In fact, Kanye doesn't do a lot for the song. I'm a huge Kanye fan, but his production and verse weren't at the top of his game. The song overall is decent but at times it feels like a collection of songs stapled together.
Leading up to the album and after the release, we heard the singles "I Luv Dem Str*ppers", "I'm Different", and the kind of single "Yuck". "I Luv Dem" sounds like another generic rap song that any other mediocre rapper would release with a forgettable verse from Nicki Minaj. "I'm different" is actually somewhat refreshing, 2 Chainz goes solo on the song and does a really good job holding it down by himself.
